New Ruins

New Ruins straddle a line between something that can be described as twangy country and a tres-cool MOR. It’s somewhat a weird affair when listening to their album We Make Our Own Bad Luck , because you can’t definitely put your finger down on what it is they are trying to do or be. Is it a rockier Iron & Wine? Or a folksier Band Of Horses. In many aspects the Illinois band – which began in 2004 as a somewhat home affair between two guys, Elzie Sexton and J.Caleb Means – seem to sound like they are on a journey of some sort, and this is their third fast step towards somewhat sped up discography. They are already looking to release a 4th LP after We Make Our Own Bad Luck was release a mere 2 months ago over in the US.
